Mary Pipher Shares How To Make Meaningful Change Possible.
In a recent conversation from our Wisdom series, Mary Pipher talked about the flood of news and information we get about the state of the world: Vivid documentaries about dying coral reefs and polar bears stranded on ice floes, scientific proof of the daily extinction of whole species, and the cascading apocalyptic effects of global warming.
Mary pointed out how news reports like these actually contribute to our inability to act. They terrify us and make us sad, but they don’t give us any idea about what to do tomorrow.
But Mary has an idea about what to do and she shares it in this quick video.
Take two minutes to listen and you’ll learn a simple way to re-frame information that can transform your ability (and your clients’) to take action toward meaningful change right now.
This is a great example of what our 6 Faces of Wisdom webcast series offers: Concrete ways to grow in wisdom with the clear goal of making us more effective therapists. It features six of psychotherapy’s most admired practitioners: Tara Brach, Eugene Gendlin, Irvin Yalom, Mary Pipher, Ron Siegel, and Nobel-laureate Daniel Kahneman.
They’ll turn esoteric notions of wisdom upside-down by demonstrating three very practical things:
- Wisdom can be learned.
- It doesn’t take a lifetime (or even a long time) to learn it.
- Becoming a wiser therapist has real practical value in the consulting room.
